Apple's News+ subscription comes to the UK and Australia

It will cost £9.99 or AU$14.99 per month after a month-long free trial period.

Apple's News+ all-you-can-eat magazine and periodical subscription service has made its way to the UK and Australia. It launched in the US and Canada this March for $10 a month, with publications that include Esquire and The Wall Street Journal. In the UK and Australia, it will set subscribers back £9.99 and AU$14.99, respectively, after a month-long free trial. And while the countries' versions feature publications the US and Canadian versions have -- such as WSJ, LA Times, National Geographic and Rolling Stone -- they also offer local titles.


The UK's, for instance, features The Times and The Sunday Times, Cosmopolitan UK, Elle UK and Esquire UK. Meanwhile, Australia's News+ includes publications like The Australian, The Daily Telegraph, Herald Sun, The Courier Mail, Vogue AU, Australian Women's Health, The Australian Women's Weekly, Harper's Bazaar Australia, Australian Men's Health and Delicious and Australian Geographic.

Apple's News+ service reportedly had a lackluster debut and didn't do as well as the company had hoped. The tech giant apparently planned changes based on that, such as using clearer labels for paid articles. UK and Australian users will be able to access the service with a device running iOS 12.2 or higher and macOS 10.14.4 or higher.
